The French military says it’s video footage of Russian mercenaries burying bodies close to a military base in northern mali that French forces departed earlier this week.
The French claim the video is proof that Russian mercenaries are getting ready a smear campaign now that the base has been handed over to Malian forces.Aerial surveillance footage taken by the French military on thursday morning and provided to The Associated Press shows what appear to be ten Caucasian troopers covering approximately a dozen Malian bodies with sand at a location 4km (2.5 miles) east of the Gossi military base in the north of mali.
In the video, one of the troopers seems to be filming the burial ground.The Caucasian troopers in the video are believed to be members of the Wagner group, a Russian mercenary force, according to a French military officer who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorised to talk on the matter.
Several tweets with footage of the bodies have already been posted on accounts that support Russia, or fake accounts created by the Wagner group, the officer said.
The tweets blame the French for the killings and the burials, according to the French officer.
One tweet from an account named military intelligence Diarra, and allegedly created by the Wagner group, states: “This is what the French left behind when they left base at #Gossi. These are excerpts from a video that was taken when they left! we cannot keep silent about this!”
